This was taken at a little beach just outside of Hana on Maui. We had driven to see the Seven Sacred Pools for the afternoon and stopped by this little locals beach on the way back. There were several locals out surfing on a beautiful fall day – and this young lady was one of them.
I had ‘the big lens’ on for this shot – a Canon 70-200mm with the Canon 1.4x extender. Combine that with the 1.6x magification of the Canon 40D, and I was at just about 500mm of 35mm equivalent for this shot.
Vital Stats: Canon 40D w/Canon 70-200 f/4L + Canon 1.4x Extender @ 280mm. ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/3200 sec.
